What? Euro Quest is a unique blend of tournaments and open gaming.

Why: Euro Quest provides a competitive forum for the play of popular "European" style boardgames in a focused, in-depth format not available elsewhere. All tournaments will be run to provide multiple opportunities to compete in the same game with a minimum of three preliminary heats preceding the elimination rounds.

The tournaments to be included are: Agricola, Thurn and Taxis, Race for the Galaxy, Ra, Princes of Florence, Power Grid, Puerto Rico, Settlers of Catan, St. Petersburg, and Ticket to Ride Combo, along with the Hot New game for 2009: Dominion. A Wild Card event including games such as: Alhambra, Can't Stop, Caylus, Goa, Pillars of the Earth, San Juan, Stone Age, Vegas Showdown, and Yspahan and a brand new title released at Essen to be announced Nov. 1. Expect to see three or four more titles added as the con draws near depending on GM availability.

BPA plaques will be awarded for each event and best overall individual performance - providing plenty of laurel opportunities for those who want to improve their standings in BPA's annual Caesar competition.

Open Gaming: Dedicated open gaming space will be provided in the main gaming hall during the entire duration of the convention.

Vendors: Z-Man Games and Canton Games will be on hand, and gamers can expect to see some of the hottest new Euros fresh from Essen.
